Colonial McAdams Military Service Records

A tradition in the family line of Thomas McAdams of Newberry and later Washington Co.,
Tennessee McAdams is that their ancestor was exiled to the Ogelthropes Colony in Georgia.
From there they migrated to North Carolina and Tennessee.
The Oglethorpe Colony men were reruited from the vicinity of Inverness, Scotland by Hugh Mackay and George Dunbar in Oct. 1735. They sailed from Inverness on the "Prince of Wales" and landed in January 1736 at Savannah, Georgia. There was 177 people in this hardy band of Scots including women and children. They were lead by John McIntosh Mohr and Hugh MacKay. They brought their own minister, Rev. John McLeod of the Isle of Skye, ordained by the Presbyterian congegation in Georgia. Solders who served were offered transportation home, discharge payment or a land grant at the end of their tour.

This may also be the case as the history of the BlackWatch Regiment raised in 1739 follows the facts of this tradition. In March of 1743 the BlackWatch Regiment was assembled at Perth, Scotland and were ordered to march to England. They arrived in London 30 April where they learned they were to be dispatched to the American plantation - the "Botany Bay "of that time.

Learning of this they set out on their return march to the North. The unit was captured at Northampton, disarmed and returned to London. The mutineers were tried and Andrew and Samuel Macpherson and Fearchar Shaw, members of Clan Chattan were executed. 50 Highlanders were sent to Gibraltar, 50 were sent Minorca, 40 sent to Leeward Islands, 30 ordered to Jamaica, and 30 to were sent Georgia.

The 42'nd Regiment was under the command of Oglethorp. During "the 45 Up-rising" the BlackWatch was stationed on the Coast of Kent. The unfortunate treatment of the BlackWatch served much to arouse sympathy with the Jacobites. In 1758 the BlackWatch distinguished themselves at the battles of Fontenoy and Ticonderoga. Other Scottish Highland Military units with American connections were Montgomery's and Fraser's Regiments. Montgomery's 77th Regiment was raised in 1757 and were stationed in Carlisle, Penn. and Luenburgh Co. Va. The 77 th served in the West Indies and later in New York. After the hostilities in 1763 both officers and men were offered transportation home or an land grant in American in proportion to their rank.

Fraser's 78 th Regiment served along with the 77 th and most of their members were given land grants in Canada and Nova Scotia. On the list of the78 th was the name of George McAdam.
